Brazil 1821. A rich cattle herder finds out that his wife dies in labor. Forced to live in the property with numerous African slaves, he marries his wife's niece. But he returns to droving, leaving his wife behind alone with the slaves.
When Alena arrives at her new elite boarding school, Filippa and the other girls start to harass her. But Alena's best friend Josefin won't let her take anymore beating. If she won't strike back, Josefin will do it for her. Hard.
This is a neat little movie dealing with some relatively banal perversions of the main female protagonist. The story is pretty linear, with rather timid diversions and lack of any subplots, perhaps too measured, this together with sparse locales and modest cast number. On the other hand, the direction is competent, acting is fairly solid, and even when naive, it does not cause distraction. The dialogue is witty and sparkly at times. Altogether, a very pleasant experience. Would be interesting to see how wold this project fare with more funding.
For those concerned, nudity is minimal and in function of the story, violence non-existent and language appropriate to situation (and, somehow, for this movie, that might not be a good thing). 5/10, plus one star for encouragement.
